smashbox1.jpg

Jocelyn has been raving about this Smashbox eyeshadow trio for awhile and after seeing her wear the Shutterspeed at book club last week I was sold. I love the color combo it make my blue eyes pop and the shadow is very long wearing. It goes on so smooth and doesn’t crease. I can’t wait to try Smasbox.com and Microfilm!

Smashbox Eye Shadow Trio

What it is:
Smashbox Studio Artists’ favorite eyeshadow shades combined into one perfectly color coordinated trio.

What it does:
These versatile shadow trios take the guesswork out of the picture-perfect, three-color eye with a matching base shade, contour color, and highlighter.

What else you need to know:
Eye Shadow Trio is formulated to be long-wearing and hypoallergenic.

Loved it!

My current mascara has met it’s time to go to the great beyond so I decided I would try something new. After looking at a few I settled on Too Faced Lash Injection and it’s a great mascara! It went on smoothly and really defined each lash while making them look longer. I didn’t notice the little socks when I was taking it off that sounds kind of cool and kind of scary. I love that you can buy a “travel” size at Sephora it’s a great way to try out a new product and it’s much easier on the pocketbook.

Too Faced Lash Injection

What it is:
Super-volumizing and lengthening mascara.

What it is formulated to do:
This exclusive, 3D formula actually builds tubes around each lash. This ” Lash Injection ” has unique elastic polymers that curl, fatten, and stretch far beyond the natural lash. This adds extreme volume, curl and length for that costly lash extension look without any of the hassle, pain or commitment. . You will no longer see clumps and lumps – but long, gorgeous, fluttering, new and improved eyelashes.

What else you need to know:
With a flick of the specially-designed “GIANT” wand lashes will be injected with indelible, weather-proof color. Substantial percentages of jojoba and vitamin E deeply condition lashes to prevent breakage and damage that can result in broken or sparse lashes. Easily removable with soap and warm water or eye make-up remover, this amazing mascara doesn’t dissolve and smudge like any ordinary mascara. Lash Injection comes off in tiny tubes, like little lash socks!

Reader Request! Looking for more information on Diorshow Blackout!

We received a reader request today, looking for more information on Dior’s Diorshow Blackout Mascara.  I feel like I’m an expert in Dior mascara, so I thought I’d help her out!

Hi I saw an ad for a new mascara in Allure, Dior Show Black out, any thoughts? Have you tried it? I am looking for lengthening high impact mascara, appreciate your help!! :) love the site!

I like Diorshow Blackout. There is not much difference between Diorshow and Diorshow Blackout. I asked the Sephora lady what was different and she said black out was more dark and it curled a little better. The brush is however smaller, but I don’t see the point in having a big brush like that. Also, it’s less likely to flake off….

Diorshow Black Out Mascara

What it is:
A limited-edition, extreme black mascara.

What it is formulated to do:
From the catwalks to you. Lashy “doe eyes” are hot this season and Dior does it best with an intense deep kohl black shade that glides on smoothly, and draws out every last lash to show-stopping lengths.

For Jessica Alba’s “modern goddess” look, hairstylist Robert Ramos created a braided updo that was “beautiful and movie star-esque, but still edgy and stylish.” Add her golden eyes and glowing skin, and the expectant star is truly divine.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow

What it is:
This is the product Urban Decay was born to make – their best-seller! A pigment-rich eyeshadow.

What it is formulated to do:
The shadow is loaded with color, with very few binders (the stuff that holds shadow together), resulting in beautiful color that blends easily and lasts. Lots of finishes to suit your mood: sparkle, shimmer, duochrome or metallic.

What else you need to know:
Professionals, celebrities, and makeup junkies swoon for the wide array of shades. The subway token compact comes complete with a window (see your shade without opening), and snaps shut with one hand – no more lost lids. All shades can be used wet for more intense color, try them as a liner!
